Amateur Radio Kits from Walford Electronics Ltd

Designed by Tim Walford G3PCJ

Latest News

I am in the final stages of proving the new Halse and Hatch designs that will soon replace the Rode and Rudge. The specification is the same but they are easier to build and probably slightly cheaper! Let me know if you are interested!

It looks like the end of July and early August is going to be very busy on the farm - please forgive me if I am a bit slow responding to inquiries.

Mean while the Redlynch (below) continues to arouse curiosity! It is a Regen TRF with four bands - Medium Wave, 160m, 80m, and 40m. MW is included to give an early confidence boosting success, while the other bands provide an excellent introduction to amateur radio activity.


The Kit Designs

There is a wide range of designs, with something for most radio interests and construction abilities. These kits are for people interested in analogue radio! You can start with a small project or build your own complete station.  The circuitry is what I concentrate on with the aim of maximising 'performance' for whatever you decide to spend. Most of the kits can be easily adapted to add facilities, because of the simple mechanics and the wide range of accessories. All kits are built in stages with testing as you progress so that, with the extensive instructions, you should develop a good understanding of how the project works and thus succeed first time! When combined with low cost mechanics, these kits provide excellent value for money and most will satisfy the practical examination aspects of obtaining your licence. Choose from:-

I also publish the quarterly newsletter Hot Iron which is sent by e mail to those who have specifically asked to be included on the distribution list; it contains mildly technical articles (with very little maths), kit design ideas or outline information, questions, builders kit experiences, general electronic news, etc on semi-technical subjects, with advance notice for new kits - so why not tell me your e address now! I am always delighted to have material for it and suggestions for topics that might to be covered.
